For decades, consumers of Douglas County have traveled for live entertainment- sometimes hours! With The SunnySide Theatre, it’s always showtime in downtown Roseburg. This hidden gem of Oregon, built from refurbished instruments, is ready to house the best acts!
But, frankly, good entertainment isn’t cheap- and the culture of Roseburg hasn’t historically welcomed charging admission for shows. This makes it difficult to pay entertainers for their hard work and dedication.
This is where you come in! Do you want to have a hand in saving the arts in your community? We have several levels of sponsorship available for community partners! So we ask:
What is art worth to you?
The SunnySide Theatre comes from a rich background of history. Built in 1908, 663 SE Jackson Street has been home to many businesses- most notably Chapman’s Pharmacy during the midcentury, which survived the infamous Roseburg Blast of 1959.
Inspired by the brick bones of the building, Dan & Lu Thomas (both artists and parents to 5 children) leased it as a family business in 2019 and began 2 years of painstaking renovations. With nothing more than a dream, the Thomas family put all they had into building a place that artists would be able to call “home.” Despite hurdles and setbacks, The SunnySide Theatre opened its doors in July of 2021, and continues to captivate audiences today.
However, to keep the dream alive, we need your help! We are seeking sponsors to collaborate with in order to both benefit local businesses, and bring the finest entertainment to Roseburg
